On September 20, Amazon is set to unveil new hardware products. David Limp, the Senior Vice President of Devices and Services at Amazon, hinted at an upcoming in-person event on that day at the company’s new headquarters in Arlington County, Virginia.
David Limp, Amazon Devices’ SVP, revealed in a post on LinkedIn that an event will take place in September to showcase what the company’s Devices & Services team has been working on.
“The Devices & Services team has already had a very busy year, and now that Amazon’s HQ2 is officially open, it only feels right to gather there in a few months to share a bit more of what we’ve been working on. Mark your calendar for 9/20 for some news from us!,” wrote Limp.
During the company’s last Devices and Services event on September 28, 2022, several new products were introduced, including the Kindle Scribe, 5th generation Echo Dot and Echo Dot with clock, Alexa Voice Remote Pro, 3rd generation Fire TV Cube, and Fire TV Omni QLED Series.
As of now, there is no word on what Amazon has in store for us at this year’s hardware event. But, if we were to guess, Amazon could bring updates to its Alexa and Fire products, which could include enhancements to Echo, Fire TV, and other products. There could also be some new upgrades coming to Amazon’s Kindle readers.
If rumours are to be believed, a new e-reader will likely be announced. This may either be a new version of the Kindle Paperwhite, released in 2021, or the Amazon Kindle Oasis, which is currently the oldest e-reader still sold by Amazon. New Fire TVs with Alexa, Fire TV Stick, and more are expected at the event.
We expect to learn more about what Amazon has in store for us in the coming days as the day of Amazon’s big reveal approaches.
